On the first press day of the Brussels International Motor Show 2016, Abarth in partnership with TAG Heuer presents an exclusive special edition: the new Abarth 595 Competizione by TAG Heuer - the sportiest and most powerful four-seater in the Abarth range. Under the leadership of Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of the LVMH Group Watch Division, the car was developed in partnership with Garage Italia Customs, run by Lapo Elkann, as a limited edition of just 30 vehicles. Its 1.4 T-jet engine has been ramped up to 180 hp with torque of 250 Nm, thanks to a new turbine and a Monza Record high-performance exhaust. The 595 Competizione by TAG Heuer is designed for adrenaline junkies, who will appreciate its 0-100 km/h acceleration in 6.7 seconds, as well as its powerful, secure brakes which use a Brembo oversized system. To add even more style and exclusivity to this feisty little car, Abarth has teamed up with Swiss watch company TAG Heuer in the first ever partnership of this kind. Cars and motor racing are part of TAG Heuer's heritage and in its genes. The Swiss luxury watch brand has famously partnered and supported some of the greatest F1 teams and drivers, as well as the most legendary circuits.
